Ep 306 -Becoming A Natural Bodybuilding Sensation w/ Will Chicomb

On this episode of RNT Fitness Radio, I’m joined by Will Chicomb, who’s taking the British natural bodybuilding scene by storm. It’s rare I meet athletes early in their career and just know they’re going to go all the way to the top. Will is that guy. After becoming the British teen bodybuilding champion in 2018, he then stepped up the age categories to take overall titles at the BNBF British midlands this year, and 3rd in the overall British finals. What’s crazy is he also won the overall at the PCA muscle talk championships this year, where he went up against bodybuilders who’d been using performance enhancing drugs for decades.

This episode is a deep dive into all things bodybuilding, as we compare notes and discuss our respective approaches to physique enhancement. I was recently introduced to Will through our supplement partners, Optimum Nutrition, so last week I went down to their headquarters in London to record this episode with Will. Which reminds me, if you’re looking to stock up on your supplements before Christmas, use the code RNT20 on the Optimum Nutrition US and UK stores for 20% off. And if you want a free Optimum Nutrition gift box, I’m currently running a review giveaway. All you need to do is leave a review on Apple Podcasts, screenshot it, and email it to info@rntfitness.com with your best shipping address.

I’m very excited and proud to announce we’ve developed a brand new partnership with one of the world’s leading premium supplement brands, Optimum Nutrition, where they’ll be helping support our RNT members, and listeners of this podcast, on their journey of health, fitness and total transformation. With the world’s #1 best-selling protein powder in their range, and a growing plant-based range, you can now use the code RNT20 to get 20% off in their US and UK stores. My personal favourite are their plant-based protein bars.
